Create a redirect page for users without SPNEGO support 

Create an HTML page to redirect users whose web browsers do not support SPNEGO.

About this task

If users navigate to a SPNEGO-protected webpage but their browsers do not support SPNEGO, redirect them to an HTML page that is not protected by SPNEGO.

To create an HTML page to redirect users ...


  1. Create an HTML page with HTML such as that shown in the following example:

      <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C/DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
      <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html"> <!-- Notes: - This file should be served from an unprotected website. Alternatively, it can be loaded from the WAS file system. - Any imbedded graphics/javascript/css must be loaded from an unprotected website. - This file is loaded after WAS is initialized. If changes to this file are necessary, restart WAS. - This file is returned whenever the SPNEGO TAI receives an NTLM token for any application in the cell. In other words, this file is generic for all applications. However, by using the document.location Javascipt , we can get the original URL, and redirect to that original URL with the "?noSPNEGO" text added - thus forcing the standard application userid/password challenge. --> <html> <script language="javascript"> var origUrl=""+document.location; if (origUrl.indexOf("noSPNEGO")<0) { if (origUrl.indexOf('?')>=0) origUrl+="&noSPNEGO"; else origUrl+="?noSPNEGO"; function redirTimer() { </script> <META HTTP-EQUIV = "Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache"> <script language="javascript"> document.write("<title> Redirect to "+origUrl+ " </title>"); </script> <head> </head> <body onLoad="redirTimer()"/> </html>

  2. Save the file as, for example, NoSpnegoRedirect.html on a publicly-accessible directory on your webserver. For example, <IHS_server>/htdocs/NoSpnegoRedirect.html.
